Hey everyone! July 18, 2016
I hope you all had a great week! It sounds like it isstaring to heat up all over there... It has been in the mid 90's all week and we have gotten a good taste of the humidity. I thought I would notice it a lot more but it actually isn't too bad. I hear it gets a lot worse in August though.
The weather is so interesting here. We just had a crazy thunder storm so this email might come a little bit late. Our power is out right now. It is so amazing all of the rain here especially coming from Utah; I love it when it rains really hard. After dinner so we went and saw they were really welcoming and we got to share a message with them. They told us they were leaving the next day to go out of town. Then when we were leaving we asked if they know of anyone that we should try. They told us about their neighbor who had been going through a really hard time. That's when we met our friend Brian he is the son of the referral and he is awesome! He truly has a sincere desire to learn more. After we shared the restoration with him we asked him if he felt that is something that really happened and he said, YES!
It is so awesome to see people recognize the truth of the gospel so quickly. We went by on Sunday for another lesson and he said sorry I wasn't able to make it to church. He is so excited to come next week. We talked to him about the Book of Mormon and why the Lord has blessed us with it in our day. I am so excited to see his testimony grow as he learns more about the restored gospel.
We also had a great lesson this week with an awesome lady named Linda. She is the grandma of one of our other investigators. It's a really interesting story we had been going by to see her granddaughter but she was never home so we would talk to Linda for a little bit. One day we decided to ask her if she would be interested in learning more she said she would love to do that so we set up a time to come back and we had such a powerful lesson with her. She was so excited to read from the Book of Mormon when we told her how the Book of Mormon and bible go hand and hand with each other she said that is how she will plan to study it by using the foot notes.
I am so grateful for the incredible experience we had this
week. I know that the Lord is always watching over us. I
left, and my Spirit shall be in your hearts, and mine angels
round about you, to bear you up." I know that this is truly his work and that we cannot do it without him. I know that this is His church, here on the earth today and that He has given us the gospel to help us return to our Father in Heaven.
I hope you all have a great week. Thank you so much for all
your love, support and prayers.
Love, Sister Goudy
